Well it has had a little time to sink in. This game was great for so many reasons. No the product isn't flawless and they'll be bumps in the road, but the way this team and staff responded when no one gave them a chance was certainly reassuring.
No one thought this team could beat Tech, no one would have faulted them if they had failed to do so. But I'll take this as proof that the cupboard isn't bare.
Again this isn't the end all be all, Kansas will still have growing pains and the breaks won't always go their way. But Kansas did enough and improved enough to make the outlook for the future look a little bit brighter. Friday will be a huge indicator as right now we have two samples of this team. One really good, one really bad. The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle and I'm ok with that for now.
I'll have a game recap this afternoon with a look at key performances, where this game was won and give one more chance to look back at a Kansas win vs. a TOP 20 opponent. For now, your morning links and plenty of good reading to be done.
